Faster Chips in stores near you soon

Posted on 25th February, 2006

I always wondered how fast computer chips can be 10 years from now.

Apparently it would be feasible to create 5GHz CPUs in four years. I have a 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 so it would be fun to have a speed jump of over 150%.

However Intel and AMD have said the rate at which clock speeds increase – in measured gigahertz, is not the main reason for the performance boosts. The companies will take advantage of increasing chip densities to pack multiple cores onto each chip, resulting in performance leaps. Intel said there may be as many as 100 cores packed on a single processor within 10 years.

How cool will that be?
